Yakimah Lucas, BT

What have you gained from working at Golden Care Therapy?

An Awesome Support Team!!

What is your favorite part in your work as an ABA Therapist?

My favorite part of my work as an ABA Therapist is the client/family experiencing AHHA moments, new found independence and confidence within themselves beyond ABA therapy. 

What is the one thing you wish people knew about your job?

It’s is not always easy, however it is rewarding being able to supply/equip our clients with the tools they need to live a quality life. 


What drove you to the ABA Therapist profession? 

My son was diagnosed with ASD when he was 3 years old. He was non-verbal and regressing in the milestones he’d already mastered. The community collaboration ( teachers, ABA Therapist, Early Intervention, Pediatrician and family) and accessible resources were a blessing to our family. My son will be 9 this summer and has surpassed our expectations tremendously. 

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Remain calm and positive at all times, even during periods of chaos and confusion. 

What would you tell your younger self? 

Stay Focused!

What is your proudest moment at Golden Care/ work as an ABA Therapist?

My proudest moment as an ABA Therapist is being a constant guiding light and a beacon of hope to inspire and encourage.
